The Bosnian state prosecution on Tuesday charged Milan Todovic with crimes against humanity for his sexual and physical assaults on his Bosniak victim.

Todovic “bought” the woman from another Bosnian Serb soldier and forced her to be his sex slave, according to the charges.

She had previously been captured and raped at several other locations by various other Bosnian Serb soldiers, the charges allege.

“Todovic kept the victim detained in a residential building in inhumane conditions, without food, water, electricity and heating,” a prosecution statement said.

“He mistreated and beat her, causing bodily injuries to her, raped her several times and forced her to have sexual intercourse with him until she fled,” it added.

The prosecution alleges that Todovic committed the crimes during a widespread and systematic attack by the Bosnian Serb Army, paramilitaries and police forces on the Bosniak civilian population in the Foca municipality in the period from October 30, 1992 to March 5, 1993.

The indictment has been filed to the state court for confirmation.
